Frederick is leaning against the bar at the Crossing Star, idly watching the colorful bustle going on around him, while the barkeep fetches his drink. It's rather busy tonight, the sort of night when you could think you saw someone you recognized, then quickly lose track of them. Which has happened to Frederick more than once already, as his glance has been darting around—there are always too many faces in a place like this that are at least somewhat familiar to him.

He's here alone tonight. No one at Dawnbright seemed to want to come with him.

"Is that so?" Frederick replies, with a bright smile. "Any luck so far in that regard?"

"No."

Sour look.

"And I don't wish to get married either."

"I don't see the attraction to it."

ie. Girls are icky.

Well, now that's interesting. Frederick leans forward again.

"The attraction to what, specifically?" he asks, eyeing Alec. "Marriage? Or the company of a woman?"

"Marriage. Women. All of it." He slouches more.

Frederick laughs.

"What about romance?" he asks. "Does that disgust you?"

Alexander frowns for a moment as he thinks about that one. He then gives a shrug. "I don't know. Never had to deal with it before."

At least he's honest.

Frederick folds his hands and rests his chin on top of his fingers, smiling in a way that's somehow both sweet and distinctly not-so-sweet.

"You do realize you can have it without either, don't you?" he purrs, in a low voice so as not to be heard by anyone not sitting at the table. "Marriage and women, I mean."

From the expression on Alec's face, it is clear that such a thought never ever crossed his mind.

At all.

"You can?"

From: [identity profile] knightofmercury.livejournal.com
A slow grin spreads across Frederick's face.

"Of course you can."

He watches, and waits for that to sink in.

It takes a rather brief moment for it to do that.

"OH. oh. Well. Oh. Oh.. . "

Frederick leans onto one hand. He glances around a bit.

"I'd elaborate, but some of the details aren't considered fit for discussion among polite society. But I'm certain you catch my drift?"

From: [identity profile] elementwizard.livejournal.com
Deciding to go with it, because, well, it'd annoy people back home. It is clear, as he leans forward, that he really only has the vaguest idea of what he's doing though.

"Do you consider this polite company?"

Date: 2011-03-03 12:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] knightofmercury.livejournal.com
"I consider this a public setting," Frederick replies, glancing at various other patrons again.

"Should I consider you polite company?" he asks, amused and curious.

"Would I be more interesting if I wasn't?" Alec asks.

It's really new territory for him where they're going, but he's interested and curious. Fredrick seems nice enough, but he's never been known for his taste in any reality.

From: [identity profile] knightofmercury.livejournal.com
"Polite society is rather boring, don't you think?"

Frederick knows exactly what Alec is asking, but he's going to toy with him a bit, dancing around the issue. He smiles innocently.

From: [identity profile] elementwizard.livejournal.com
"Considering the people I've met in polite society lately, yes, I would have to say that is rather dull." Alec has had more than enough polite society since he's been in London and he's not been there very long at all.

"Mm."

Frederick leans back in his chair, crossing his legs.

"So tell me, where are you staying currently?"

"With my godfather," Alec says with a disinterested shrug.

He names a semi-upper class neighborhood of which someone else beyond the mun would know what they meant.

From: [identity profile] knightofmercury.livejournal.com
Frederick's fiddling with his gloves again, seemingly as disinterested.

"I've been there-- that's a lovely little part of London," he says. "I suppose your godfather was told to keep an eye on you. I hope he hasn't burdened you with a curfew or any ridiculous thing like that?"

Date: 2011-03-13 05:36 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] elementwizard.livejournal.com
"He's actually a bit ridiculous. Obsessively trying to keep me ... safe." Alec wrinkles his nose. It's a kinda cute gesture.

"It took forever to convince him I didn't need a chaperon."

Frederick taps his chin. That's not what he was hoping to hear... The thought might be more trouble than it's worth.

"That's a shame. I suppose he would notice if you were absent for too long?"

From: [identity profile] elementwizard.livejournal.com
"Even if he does, then what? It's not like he can track me down," Alec says. "I can go where I want."

"Oh, but would you not get in terrible trouble?" Frederick practically sings, his tone horribly teasing, like he's talking to a little boy.
